Start a Protective Order

If you choose to continue from this page, you will be able to:

  • prepare all of the papers you need to give to the court
  • find out what is likely to happen when you get to court
  • receive printouts of all the information you need
To see if the courts can help you, we will need to ask a few questions.

We will see whether you have a right to have the court issue an order against your abuser. We will check two things: YOUR RELATIONSHIP to your abuser, and whether your abuser has BEHAVED in a way that entitles you to a protective order.
